The Off Broadway Alliance will again sponsor 20at20, the bi-annual celebration of Off Broadway.  The popular promotion, which begins September 4th and continues through September 23, makes $20 tickets for more than 30 Off Broadway plays and musicals available to theatre-goers twenty minutes prior to curtain.  Now in its 6th year, 20at20 has become one of New York’s most eagerly-anticipated promotions for budget-conscious theatre-goers.

Peter Breger, Chairman of the non-profit Off Broadway Alliance said: “We are thrilled to once again offer $20 tickets to many of New York’s most popular Off Broadway shows, including three winners of the Off Broadway Alliance Awards: SILENCE! The Musical, Stinkykids The Musical, and NEWSical The Musical.

“Just show up twenty minutes before curtain to purchase available $20 tickets at the box office.  Here’s your chance to catch up with shows you may have missed, get a sneak peek at the newest hits, or revisit a favorite show – all for just 20 bucks.” 

Since Off-Broadway has performances to fit everyone's schedule, you can see more than one on weekends: on Saturday for example, you can see Gazillion Bubble Show at 11 AM, Avenue Q at 2:30PM, Sistas the Musical at 4:30PM, SILENCE! The Musical at 8 PM and Fuerza Bruta at 10PM! Where else can you see five shows in one day, for less than the price of ONE BROADWAY TICKET?

All 20at20 ticket sales are cash only.  For a complete list of participating shows and venues see below or visit www.20at20.com.

 Once again, if you see seven Off Broadway shows during the OBA’s Fall 20at20 promotion, you can enjoy a FREE DINNER on us!  See any seven of the participating 20at20 shows between September 4th and September 23 and receive a voucher for free dinner for two at an area restaurant.  Just mail your original ticket stubs (no photocopies accepted) for seven 20at20 shows to: 20at20 Dinner Special, 555 Eighth Avenue, Suite 905, NY, NY10018. All entries must be postmarked by September 24th to be valid.  Please include your name, phone, email, and mailing address.

20at20 is presented by The Off Broadway Alliance (OBA), a non-profit corporation organized by theater professionals dedicated to supporting, promoting and encouraging the production of Off Broadway theater and to making live theater increasingly accessible to new and diverse audiences.  The Alliance holds monthly meetings and membership is open to everyone in the Off-Broadway theater community.  Among its initiatives, The Off Broadway Alliance sponsors a free Seminar Series focusing on the culture, business and history of Off Broadway featuring major players from the Off Broadway scene.  And the OBA created the Off Broadway Economic Impact Report, which details Off Broadway's over $500 million annual impact on the economy of the City of New York."

20at20 is presented with additional support from Playbill, BroadwayBox.com, BestOfOffBroadway.com, BroadwayInsider.com, TheMenEvent.com and 8Coupons.com.

Our reviews are professional reviews written without a religious bias. At the end of them, you can find a listing of language, content or theological issues that Christians might want to know about when deciding which shows to see.

** Mature indicates that the show has posted an advisory because of content. Usually this means I would recommend no one under the age of 16 attend.

Key to Content Notes:

God's name taken in vain -- means God or Jesus is used in dialogue without speaking directly to or about them.

Language -- means some curse words are used. "Minor" usually means the words are not too strong or that it only occurs once or twice throughout the show.

Strong Language -- means some of the more heavy duty curse words are used.

Nudity -- means a man or woman's backside, a man's lower front or a woman's front are revealed.

Scantily clad -- means actors' private areas are technically covered, but I can see a lot of them.

Sexual Language -- means the dialogue contains sexually explicit language but there's no action.

Sexual Activity -- means a man and woman are performing sexual acts.

Adultery -- Means a married man or woman is involved sexually with someone besides their spouse. If this is depicted with sexual acts on stage, the list would include "sexual activity" as well.

Sex Outside of Marriage -- means a man and woman are involved sexually without being married. If this is depicted sexually on stage, the list would include "sexual activity" as well.

Homosexuality -- means this is in the show, but not physically depicted.

Homosexual activity -- means two persons of the same sex are embracing/kissing. If they do more than that, the list would include "sexual activity" as well.

Cross Dresser -- Means someone is dressing as the opposite sex. If they do more than that on stage the listing would include the corresponding "sexual activity" and/or "homosexual activity" as well.

Cross Gender -- A man is playing a female part or a woman is playing a man's part.

Suggestive Dancing -- means dancing contains sexually suggestive moves.

Derogatory (category added Fall 2012) Language or circumstances where women are referred to or treated in a negative and demeaning manner.

Other content matters such as torture, suicide or rape will be noted, with details revealed only as necessary in the review itself.

The term "throughout" added to any of the above means it happens many times throughout the show.

Reviewing Policy

I receive free seats to Broadway and Off-Broadway shows made available to all voting members of the Outer Critics Circle and The Drama Desk, the two professional critics organizations with journalists covering NY theater. Journalistically, I provide an unbiased review and am under no obligation to make positive statements. Sometimes shows do not make tickets available to reviewers. If these are shows my readers want to know about (I review all Broadway shows and pertinent Off-Broadway shows), I will purchase a ticket. If a personal friend is involved in a production, I'll let you know, but it won't influence a review. If I feel there is a conflict, I won't review their portion of the production.
